The continued success of renal transplantation has provided a higher quality of life for properly selected patients with ESRD. It is also a much more cost-effective and efficient treatment of ESRD compared with chronic dialysis. Innovative urologic reconstructive surgery using enteric segments for both continent and incontinent urinary diversions has permitted this therapeutic modality to be offered to the recipient with lower urinary tract disease not previously amenable to renal transplantation. These same reconstructive techniques using ileal segments have also permitted preservation of renal allografts with previously nonreconstructable renal pelvic or ureteral disease.
